    Hey,

    So I got to thinking tonight, you know how there are different generations of iPhone, and the 3GS comes with the video-camera application, auto-focus and all that?

    Alright, well on a site where you can download iPhone/iPod firmwares direct, it shows a firmware for the original iPhone, 3G iPhone, 3GS iPhone.. They're all 3.1.2.

    What if I tried shift+restore with a 3GS firmware on my 3G? Would this give me the auto-focus and video-camera without jailbreaking?

    No. It wouldn't even restore, iTunes would throw you an error.

    Even if you did manage to somehow get it on, it would fail because it doesn't have the necessary hardware.

    I could be wrong, but from my understanding.. it's a hardware difference, not software. It's the camera that allows auto-focus and recording.

    Kyle: I was asking a question, don't need to get lippy.

    Chicken: Alright, thanks for clearing this up.

    Yet, how do we get Cycorder to handle video's?

    I'm thinking someone should find a way to port the 3GS firmware into a way that could be applied to the 3G. Or like the fake "blackra1nb0w" make a program, for jailbroken iPhone 3G's that allow the auto-focus, and video-recording.

    You can't just "enable auto-focus", the hardware implements autofocus not the software.

    As for Cycorder... you'd have to ask Saurik.

    But it isn't the same quality as an iPhone 3GS and does not record videos in the same way.

    get a thing called videomover to move your cycorder videos to your camera roll for email and whatnot.

    This is just off the top of my head, but maybe, MAYBE, Cycorder takes a series of pictures and then just slaps them all together

    Chris: That's not what happens, it couldn't "snap" that fast without going really blurry. And alright, where do I find videomover? This was my only issue, getting them onto the PC and stuff.

    Once it's moved to the camera roll, will it show up in the iPhone folder on my PC when I connect via USB?

    yes it will. your iPhone should appear as a camera, just click Open Folder to View Files, and go through a couple of folders and voila. just drag and drop.
